USED by meticulous owner--MEADE ETX125 Maksutov- Cassegrain Telescope excellent with many extras. Condition is Used. Shipped Fed Ex Ground.
Came from the family of a perfectionist who worked at the Los Alamos Natl Lab. Everything in the house was meticulously cared for--he was that kind of guy. This is an older model--probably about 2003.The Main photo is a stock image--see the others for the actual thing.Has all the manuals. many extra downloads, software, everything's there. Today the standard model costs $700on sale pretty much everywhere. However this one goes a bit beyond the standard item
-- It has the DELUXE field tripod (not sure how much this costs but it's MUCH better than the standard tripod -- Instead of the of the standard 2 eyepieces it has a total of of SIX 6.4 mm 9.7 mm 12.4 mm 15 mm 26 mm 2 x Barlow plus a moon filter Addl cost today abt $150-$200 plus a high grade alum. case for the above lenses
In all, the additional cost of the above today would be about $200 not counting whatever the heavy-duty tripod would add--so it's a lightly used version of what would be about a $900 thing new
I haven't set it up but everything looks perfect and would be warrantied by UPS regardless The one exception is that one of the adjustment screws on the tripod has a bit of a bend in it--it works fine as is and could probably be made straight again if it bothered you--or a replacement couldn't cost more than a few dollars if you wanted perfection (totally understand).
I believe this model came out in 1999 and has been an industry standard ever since. There were a few bugs in the first few that were immediately worked out by Meade in the same year. I highly, highly doubt there are any intrinsic problems with this one as it's several years newer than 1999--I doubt the original owner would have tolerated it anyway.
Shipping to the lower 48 states would cost about $65 by best guess--if it were more we'd cover the difference--if less we'd refund the difference. Different story for Alaska, Hawai'i or international. Message us for a quote if that's the case..
